How to clean ceramic tile flooring like a pro

To get the most out of your home improvements and renovations, it is initially crucial to understand the best flooring options for interior design. The right flooring can serve as the finishing touch to any design style in your home, whether it's modern, contemporary, or rustic, it does more than just provide a surface to stand on. Your home's design is built on the foundation of an attractive, long-lasting floor. Homes often choose flooring made from wood, carpet, hardwood, tile, bamboo and more, but some materials cause the following cleaning problems - especially ceramic tile - which, if not cleaned properly, can impair its durability, aesthetic appeal, and probably your family’s health.

 

Issues on ceramic tile flooring you cannot ignore

While hardwood requires regular sweeping or vacuuming, plus the occasional use of hardwood floor cleaner, tile floors require regular sweeping, vacuuming and mopping, and grout lines can become caked with dust and dirt. This can be more work as you may have to regularly scrub and reseal the grout lines to keep the floor in good condition. If we go through the list of germs and bacteria, allergens, microbes and germs can be found on dirty tiles and grout lines. This type of harmful bacteria can build up on your tile floors. Mold, on the other hand, is especially prevalent in tiled and grouted bathrooms. When you turn on the shower and crank up the heat, you create a warm, humid environment in which mold can thrive. Not to mention the damp footsteps we create after a shower. That's why professional cleaning is so important.

 

How to clean ceramic tile flooring?

Remove all footwear, area rugs, furniture, and anything else that can get in the way of your cleaning before you start, then take the following steps:

  • Use a robot vacuum cleaner or broom to remove loose dirt, sand, and other debris.
  • Scrape off any sticky buildup on the tiles with a plastic putty knife or an old credit card.
  • Add boiling water, 1/2 cup vinegar, and 1/2 tablespoon dish soap to a bucket. Avoid usingtoo much soap since the soapy residue may diminish the appearance of your floors.
  • To get rid of any debris from the last time you used the mop, rinse it under hot running water before you start mopping.
  • Use soapy water to mop the tile floors.
  • Then use plain hot water to clean off any remaining soap.
  • While you can let the floor dry naturally, more dirt will be removed if you dry it with a fresh cloth or towel preventing water spots.

The secret behind just the cleaning tricks

AIRROBO T10+ is one of the essential items for floor cleaning and maintenance, which will bring meticulous cleaning to tile surfaces and gaps. With a 2700Pa suction power and a cleaning path it creates in your home, the AIRROBO T10+'s high-torque brush roll and side brushes enable it to efficiently roll up and vacuum dirt and dust in grout lines between tiles as well as other debris hiding in tile gaps. The mopping module is attached at the bottom and has a sophisticated 2-in-1 tank that allows water to seep out gently and evenly to wet the floor and remove dried-on stains that can build up on bare floors. The scrubbing power removes stains like dried ketchup, coffee, and others, making itself a good help for you.

Speaking of the cleaning your robot vacuum cleaner does, how many of the rolling brushes your robot vacuum cleaner comes with can scratch, scrape or otherwise harm your floors and leave permanent damage? A T10+ main brush with rubber and bristles prevents the actual harm that a rubber main brush would actually cause to ceramic tiles. When cleaning the gaps, a rubber main brush that may become tangled with a stone will eventually scratch the tiles all over. Wooden floors on the other side can be waxed and repaired, but ceramic tile damage is irreversible.

On any robotic vacuum cleaner, the first surfaces to come into contact with dirt and liquids on the floor are its wheels and brushes. The side wheels in particular - the T10+'s side wheels - are made for the possibility of accidental wheel slip, colliding with objects around your house and pushing dirt and grime around. With non-skid tires, slippery floors don't seem to pose a problem because the tread pattern increases friction on the floor, so the T10+ won't cause any trouble when cleaning.

Take a look at the lines in between your tile. Are they clean and spotless? Dirty grout lines can not only accumulate the dirt, dust, and mud over time but also seem like a tough or permanent stain that ruins the interior design all over your place. Spills can also add to the overall uncleanliness of your tile if left untreated. But with the above cleaning tips and tricks along with the AIRROBO T10+ as a secret weapon for tiles cleaning sessions you often take, you can now clean like a pro at ease.
